Rave reviews for Theo Ubique’s “Cabaret”!!

Cabaret Poster

Looks like Theo Ubique Theatre has a big hit on their hands up in Roger Parks’ No Exit Cafe.  Across the board, the reviews have been stellar, including:

Beverly Friend from the Pioneer Press:

The magic begins as the audience enters the No Exit Cafe, now reincarnated as Berlin’s 1930’s decadent Kit Kat Klub complete with cast members waiting tables and — for those who include dinner in the evening’s festivities — bringing out brimming plates of knockwurst, sauerkraut and spaetzel or vegetable pot pie. The hot, tasty food provides as much nourishment for the body as the story line nourishes the heart and soul…

If you haven’t seen any version of “Cabaret,” what are you waiting for? Get going. It doesn’t get any better than this!

And Tom Williams over at ChicagoCritic.com opines:

Director Fred Anzevino sure knows how to stage a musical on his tiny No Exit Cafe stage. His skillful blocking and smart use of the tight knocks and crannies gave his production of Cabaret an emotional edge that catapulted us back to the 1930 Kit Kat Club of Weimar Berlin. Featuring the rich John Kander score on Fred Ebb’s biting lyrics, Cabaret is a multi-layered musical of decadence and desperation. Based on Christopher Isherwood’s novel, Berlin Stories, Cabaret from its 1966 Broadway opening (winner of 8 Tony’s) and the 1972 film (winner of 8 Oscars) has been mounted often to varying levels of success. Theo Ubique’s production is superb in every aspect. It sings well, dances expertly and is acted richly. In short, this production deserves packed houses-it is that good!
